Mind over video game

Post by Apoptosis » Tue Jun 15, 2004 10:53 am

This is pretty darn cool and the research was done less than an hour away! Musta found some pretty dedicated gamers to have electrodes placed directly on the brain.
Using thought alone and with some electrodes placed on the surface of the brain, four volunteers were able to control a video game, U.S. researchers reported Monday.

Simply by thinking the word "move", the volunteers played the simple video game, the researchers reported.

"We are using pure imagination. These people are not moving their limbs," said Dr. Eric Leuthardt, a neurosurgeon at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis who worked on the study.

Yikes, I don't think so.......
The thought racing through my mind was from the movie "Minority Report".

I always wanted a "read programmers mind" instruction when doing some programming homework.

Looks like it's not far off!
